Ten years ago, scientists were shocked when a huge amount of seaweed appeared in tropical waters in the Atlantic Ocean. The area where it was found usually lacks the nutrients to feed such growth.

Years later, a group of U.S. researchers has identified one of the leading causes for the event: city and farm runoff carried by rivers to the ocean. This nutrient-charged outflow is just one of several likely suspects fueling an explosion of seaweed in warm waters of the Americas.          Continue reading

‘Venezuela Won’t Even Get to Exploit 5% of Its Oil Reserves’ – Marianela Palacios | Caracas Chronicles

Now that oil prices are recovering, Francisco Monaldi analyzes the truth of the nature and magnitude of what lies beneath the Faja del Orinoco (Orinoco Belt) and the historic use of fossil fuel to determine the role of oil in our future 

Marianela Palacios | Caracas Chronicles

IT IS TRUE THAT THERE ARE OVER ONE TRILLION OIL BARRELS IN THE VENEZUELAN SUBSOIL. That’s why Nicolás Maduro brags about the “world’s largest reserves”, although he adds that only a fraction of them are “proven” and exploitable; between 20 and 25 percent of the total amount: 300 billion barrels. But it is also true that, if things stay the way they are, most of it will remain underground forever. The carbon dioxide won’t be released into the atmosphere nor will that wealth be used.              Continue reading

USA: White men on horseback rounding up Haitian refugees is vintage Americana — By Mohamed Hamaludin

By Mohamed Hamaludin

President Joe Biden acknowledged in his victory speech that “the African American community stood up again for me,” adding, “You’ve always had my back, and I’ll have yours.” So how come, during Biden’s watch, mounted European American Border Patrol agents used their horses and reins as whips to force Haitian refugees from American soil, evoking the round-up of escaping slaves?

As president, Biden must be held accountable but the herding of the Haitians under the Del Rio, Texas, border bridge was just the latest manifestation of an immigration system designed to favor European Americans. That was evident when Congress passed the Cuban Adjustment Act in 1966 accepting Cubans escaping Communism as political refugees. Haitians fleeing the horrors of the Duvalier dictatorship are deemed economic refugees, turned back at sea and deported if they make it to land.      Continue reading
